Rangers are not playing at their top level according to Greg Stewart

Greg Stewart believes that Rangers are nowhere near their best yet, and he thinks that the Gers have a lot more in the tank.

Speaking to The Sunday Post, the 31-year-old striker revealed that he is expecting the Bears to get better but that there are plenty of positives to take from the start of the season.

The Gers are top of the league and have a six-point lead over Celtic, and we are just seven games into the season, so we can see why Stewart is pleased with what he has seen from his old side.

He said: “I’ve watched every game this season, and the lads are just that wee bit off it at the moment.

“But they have still been winning games, and during the week made it into the semi-final of the Premier Sports Cup.

“Despite being a bit off it, they are still top of the league and beat Celtic 1-0 in the first Old Firm game of the season. So there is plenty to be positive about.

“From what I’ve seen, the lads are playing at about 60 or 70%. There is plenty more to come from them.

“I’m confident they will recapture the form of last season, and when they do, they will not be stopped.”

Very positive from Stewart.

The 31-year-old made 33 appearances for the Bears under Steven Gerrard in which he scored three goals and provided seven assists, so he was a decent player for them.

However, he has also played a good amount of games with a lot of this squad, so if anyone is going to know the truth, then it is probably him.

Therefore, it is very interesting to hear that he thinks his old club are only performing at 60 or 70%, and that suggests there is a lot more to come.

However, one of the key signs of a good team is that they can win when not playing at their best, and that is certainly the case at the moment.

Stewart, though, does suggest that the Bears’ best form is just around the corner, and if they find that form, you would think no one else in the league would stand a chance, and the league should be theirs.
